This Week on the Find Your Dream Job Podcast

The human resources department can seem like a black hole-a place where applications disappear without a trace. But there is a science to working with HR; and, when you know how the process works, an HR department can be your gateway to a great job.

A government job can offer you the opportunity to address issues that matter, such as education,  the environment, and homelessness. You can find positions suited to every interest and skill, from art history to zoology. And the work itself can be gratifying. But getting your first government job can be challenging.

Sometimes it seems like these two sectors speak completely different languages! Some people falsely believe that the skills developed in one sector are not transferable to the other. If you're facing this challenge, we share the single best way to overcome the entry barriers to working in a nonprofit. 

Networking is something many people dread, but this get together is a way to get out in the community, meet new people and have fun all at the same time-and it's free for all, so you just have to RSVP. We hope to see you there!

We're pleased to announce the next round of job search and career development experts who will appear on the podcast. These nationally-recognized guests will share insider perspectives and practical tips on an array of job hunting and career management topics.
